EndNote FAQ

Interactive EndNote Workshop

We offer employees of GFZ, PIK, AWI and IASS to participate in an “interactive EndNote Training Session” as a walk through the basics of using EndNote. The concept is a hands-on workshop for groups but individual introductions are possible as well. For registration please contact Dorothea Hansche: hansche(at)gfz-potsdam.de or Tel. 1607.

You can also use the workshop material for self-studies (Handout and Walkthrough). The set contains detailed exercises, the complete walkthrough and sample files for the EndNote programme.

Travelling Library 

The Travelling Library refers to the formatted citations in your Word document.

A Travelling Library is created for each Word document when you use Cite While You Write (CWYW). Each time you format a citation (e.g. insert a reference from either EndNote or EndNote Web) EndNote will look in your open library to find the corresponding reference. If the library is not available or not open, EndNote uses the Travelling Library for reference information.

This allows you to collaborate with other authors on a paper without each author having the same EndNote library because reference data is kept with each formatted citation.

The reference data saved with each citation includes all fields except Notes, Abstract, and Figure.

You can also create an EndNote Library from a Travelling Library (or add the references to an existing library) but remember that the references in the new EndNote Library will have different record numbers than those in the original library, so do not reformat your document unless you have the original library open.
